Jayant Yadav, Saini added to India's ODI squad

Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the series against South Africa while Mohammad Siraj is doubtful due to a hamstring injury

Off-spinner Jayant Yadav and pacer Navdeep Saini were on Wednesday added to India's ODI squad for the three-match series against South Africa. Off-spinner Washington Sundar was earlier ruled out of the series after testing positive for COVID-19 during the camp in Bengaluru. Saini has been named as a back-up for Mohammad Siraj who suffered a hamstring injury during the second Test in Johannesburg.

Sundar was supposed to travel to Cape Town with the ODI members on Wednesday and join the rest of the squad ahead of the series.

"The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Jayant Yadav as replacement for Sundar," the BCCI said in an official release. "The Committee also added fast bowler Navdeep Saini to the ODI squad as a back-up for Mohammed Siraj who is still recovering from his hamstring injury that he sustained in the 2nd Test against South Africa in Johannesburg," it added.

India are also without the services of white-ball captain Rohit Sharma, who was ruled out of the South Africa tour due to a recurring hamstring injury. KL Rahul, who led India in the second Test in absence of Virat Kohli, has been named captain for the ODI series beginning on January 19 in Paarl.

India’s ODI squad: KL Rahul (Captain), Jasprit Bumrah (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Prasidh Krishna, Shardul Thakur, Md. Siraj, Jayant Yadav, Navdeep Saini.
